, a justification for murdering. it's never the fault of a movie. it's never the fault of the united states. it's never the fault of western culture that people are murdered in the name of somebody else's religion. it's the responsibility and it's the fault and people to be held accountable are the ones who committed these specific acts of terror against the united states. in the past, the united states has always held and went after those responsible for this time of conduct. in 1998 when the kenyan embassy was attacked and americans were killed, we responded. of course we responded in 9/11. we responded after the first world trade center bombing. in 1996 when 19 american soldiers were murdered in saudi arabia we responded. in fact, president bill clinton said this -- the cowards who committed this murderous act must not go unpunished. we will not rest in our efforts to find who is responsible for this outrage to pursue them and to punish them. and after 9/11, president bush made this comment -- the search is under way for those who are behind these evil acts. i've directed the full resources

that a third airplane flying over washington, d.c., very close to the building we are in, the united states capitol, went down the street less than a mile and crashed into the pentagon. and that was at 9:37 eastern time. then a fourth airplane, we remembered as flight 93, was flying toward washington, d.c., probably the capitol or the white house where some good right thinking folks took control of the plane from a high jacker an they were -- hi jacker and they were -- hijack er and they were crashed in a field. on september 11, 2001, this nation was attacked. 3,000 people were killed that day. it's interesting that the attackers decided to attack the world trade center because people from 90 nationalities were in the world trade center building. the south and the north. so it was more than an attack on america, it was an attack on the people of the world. freedom-loving people. people who believed in living life and liberty. the murder was done by 19 radicals who murdered in the name of religion. of the 3,000 people that were killed, 411 of them were emergency workers. 341 were members of
the united states in new york city, pentagon and also shanksville, pennsylvania. almost 3,000 people died that morning. a look at what happened then and how it was remembered today. >> an incredible plane crashed in to the world trade center. >> all we can do is stare aghast at the pictures at this point. another plane just flew in to the second tower. >> it's a tragedy. it's abhorrent. it is disgusting. >> we are hearing right now at another explosion has taken place at the pentagon. >> it's gone! the whole tower!
